“Lukas is the real deal,” says Lee. “He proved that he’s got the voice and swagger to front this band. He’s gonna tear it up in the studio and then we’re taking the show on the road. Wear a cup, kids.”

“This is the gig of a lifetime,” says Rossi. “That I’ll be singing in a band with Tommy, Gilby and Jason – guys that I’ve always respected – is just surreal. Can’t wait to get started.”

The new quartet will immediately head into the studio to record their Epic Records debut. The album is scheduled for a November 21 release.

The first two singles from the band’s much-buzzed-about debut album are “It’s All Love” and “Be Yourself & 5 Other Cliches.”

Rossi and the other three finalists from the the hit CBS series, “Rock Star: Supernova” (Dilana Robichaux, Magni Asgeirsson and Toby Rand ) each went into the studio with the band before the show’s final taping to record the tracks.

After a quest that included 25,000 entrants, 22 cities and six continents, the band spent the summer assessing 15 finalists on everything from songwriting skills to live performance.

In January Rock Star: Supernova embarks on its first worldwide tour. Supporting will be the TV show co-host Dave Navarro’s band, The Panic Channel. Also on the bill will be fan favorites from the show, backed by the shows house band.

The tour kicks off with two inaugural shows in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, then moves on to the Hard Rock in Miami, Fla., on January 16 for a 27-city trek, culminating at the Long Beach Arena on February 27.
